Bezbednosna ažuriranja za Chrome i Edge pretraživače: Kako korisnici mogu popraviti ove opasne propuste

Google recently announced an update for its web browser Chrome, which fixes a security vulnerability that experts have deemed “very risky”. This security loophole also affects other browsers that are based on the same platform, such as Microsoft’s Edge, reports Watson.

According to Google experts, this security vulnerability allows malicious individuals to exploit the system and execute malicious code through website manipulation. The Federal Office for Information Security in Germany has warned users to update their browsers, especially if they are using older versions of Chrome and Edge.

These security loopholes affect six vulnerabilities in the Chromium substructure, including WebGPU and WebAudio. Fortunately, both Google and Microsoft have reacted quickly to this situation and released updates that fix these issues.

But how can users update their browsers? Usually, users automatically receive updates for Chrome and Edge. However, there is also the option for users to manually install a new version if they have disabled automatic updates.

To do this, simply click on the “About Google Chrome” or “About Edge” option in your browser’s menu. In the window that opens, you can check if a new update is available or if the browser is already up to date.

The new versions of Chrome with the fixed bugs are 120.0.6099.216/217 for Windows and 20.0.6099.210 for Android. After the update, the version of the Edge browser will be 120.0.2210.121.

It is important to note that to date, no cases of these security vulnerabilities being exploited have been reported, but there is great potential for harm. Therefore, it is recommended that users update their browsers immediately to protect their computers and data.
